    Hi Vanecia. If you have just gotten on the medicine you can have side effects but if I heard you correctly...you had great relief from day one. To me that's great news. Right? It can take some people weeks to adjust to the meds while others have very few problems adjusting. I encourage you to give the med time to work. In the meantime maybe think about getting some counseling. Call your GP and ask for a referral. What do you think? Will you keep us posted? Diane

    I was on fluoxotine awhile back and had horrible side affects. I think I had the dry mouth but it also made me very paranoid at night, more than I already am. It also gave me horrifying nightmares. I was terrified to take it and just couldn't bring myself to keep taking it. I just stopped taking it until my doctor and I met t my net appointment and he switched my meds but I shouldn't have stopped taking them. The next time I had bad side affects from a medication or didn't feel comfortable taking them, I called my doctor and he got me off of them. So if I were you, I would write down what side affects you are having and try to get in contact with your doctor to let him know you are not comfortable taking them.

    I have been on this drug 3 times now and have dad to return it after a year off.

    Yes it does work. Took me just over a week before it kicked in.  Once it does you will lose the feelings of panic.

    I asked my doctor for a couple of weeks of Diazipam. To take during the kick in period and that is working

    Perhaps yu could do the same
